Indo-European Migration

The Indo-Europeans were nomadic peoples who were originally from the area around the border of Europe and Asia. Their language eventually developed into English, Sanskrit, Persian, Spanish, German as the Indo-Europeans migrated outward in all directions.

The Hittites

The Hittites were a group of Indo-Europeans who migrated to Anatolia (modern-day Turkey). The Hittite empire formed around 1650 BCE and later dominated the area, occupying Babylon and warring with Egypt. Because the empire was so large, the Akkadian language was also adopted.
